Just out of curiosity, how come a question about symfony is offtopic on a programming site?
What is meta?

No idea why the question was closed. The question essentially boils down to:
That's a concrete, specific and answerable question, about something that's unique to the programming profession:
I can only speculate, but I suspect the close voters thought the question was asking about installing some random non programming specific tool, which would make the question more appropriate for Super User. In any case, the closure is incorrect. It happens, we can't get it right every time.
I have reopened the question after a fairly substantial edit was made to clean it up.
If you see a question like this the best approach is to edit it in to shape and then cast a reopen vote (if you are able) or maybe flag it for moderator attention (if you can't).
The question is not "actually" about Symphony. The OP is asking advice on how to install X. Stack Overflow deals with programming problems, not the errors you face while installing something.
It was closed as off-topic as the OP should instead have asked this on the application's own forums or help-desk.
